Agatha Ragata Game-play Preview

Agatha Ragata currently consists of a single demo/presentation level, until we decide how/if we should procede with the development. Yesterday I decided that I should record a video clip of this level and put it on YouTube to show our friends over at TIGSource.

Later on I checked my YouTube account to see how many views the clip had got (being an Internet geek like everyone else), and I was somewhat surprised that it was about double what I had expected. I realized that the clip had been posted in the blog, which is great! I also realized that my “secret” clip recording wasn’t as covert as I had planned… and I shamefully admit that if we have published Oxeye material on the web, people who faithfully read this blog should also be invited to the party :)

Hit the jump for a game-play preview of Agatha Ragata…

Agatha Ragata

Agatha Ragata

“Whaa?! What’s this? They’re EXPELLING me from the Society?! Who put vegetables in the pot this time? I will SHOW them! Oh yes… putrid peach soup, they will regret this!”

Agatha puts on her cape and prepares for the long journey to Blue Hill, where the witchcraft society’s leaders rule the esteemed organization. For who would believe the worth of her crooked fingernails if she didn’t qualify as a member? No, things must be set right!

With frantic eagerness, she bangs her bony fists on the great castle doors, announcing her arrival,

“Let me in! How dare you lock me out? These walls will not stop ME! I’ll turn stone into tofu if I must!”

From a small window above the ugliest of the witches, the Keeperwitch, points out her wart-ridden nose,

“Oh, we’ve been expecting you, Agatha! Why don’t you fall inside?”

“Fall? Did you’re as stupid as a faun, Keeperwitch! Now unlock the door!”

With a small *tick* the door opens… under Agatha’s feet! She falls down, straight into the Blue Hill’s prisons. The welcome committee is already there – all of the society leaders: Broomwitch, Greenwitch, Fairywitch, Nightwitch, Manwitch, Robowitch, Keeperwitch, Sandwitch and the meanest of them all, Master Witch! They all carry smug smiles on their faces, bringing Agatha to the boiling point!

“There’s no locking ME up! I will turn you all into salted slugs!”

Which is where our story begins…
